    Smile Had to use saddle soap today!!

    Well I decided to give the inside of the car a good clean today, but I was really annoyed when I couldn't find leather cleaning products,, I thought I had left them at my mams house,, I think she hid them on me,, ah well,,

    So instead I had a thought!! The seats are made out of leather and so are our saddles,, and we have loads of saddle soap and saddle oil!! so feck it I'll just use that,, and to be completely honest the soap cleaned it brilliantly and after the leather seemed to be a small bit tighter (could just be my perspective) than before,, and after I gave it a good dry and then I oiled them and OMG they are so much softer and nicer to touch than before and have a brilliant shine off them,, Turned out to be a good idea,, lol,, Much better than the Autoglym Leather Cleaner,, Only problem with the saddle soap and oil is that I was told I'd be killed if I used to much,, Bloody stuff my mam gets in is a fortune,, ah the joys of having horses!!


    edit: i added piics, sorry about the mess but took the center console apart and the amount of dust and stuff that went all over the place was mental!!!
